With dramatic impact, Liz Marshall’s The Ghosts In Our Machine gently reveals a stark reality that is hidden from our view. Through the heart and lens of acclaimed animal photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, this consciousness-raising documentary shines a cinematic light on the animals we don’t easily acknowledge — the “ghosts” — are commodities within the machine of our modern world.

Over the course of a year, award-winning director Liz Marshall follows McArthur as she photographs several animal stories in parts of Canada, the U.S., and in Europe. Each story is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment, and Research. All part of an epic photo project called We Animals now in its 15th year and shot all over the globe, McArthur has documented the lives of animals with heartbreaking empathic vividness and professionalism.
